Polexia is not a name that has much information behind it. From what I could find, it seems to be the anglicized spelling of Poleksija (the name of a former Serbian princess who also had a sister named Kleopatra), the Serbian form of Polyxena, an Ancient Greek female name meaning “entertaining many guests” or essentially “very hospitable” from Ancient Greek polys (many) and xenos (foreigner, guest, stranger). In Greek mythology, Polyxena is the daughter of King Priam and Queen Hecuba of Troy who was later sacrificed at the end of the Trojan War.

Origin: Proto-Indo-European
